I bet most of you will think this title is absurd and the article will be useless. But dude you are wrong. Yes, WiFi networks cover almost all corners nowadays, and even if you are out of the WiFi zone in your home, you can still get access to WiFi in places such as McDonalds, Pizzahut, etc. However, there will always be the exceptions.
Try to imagine having a Kindle Fire HD tablet, but you are temporarily out of range of a WiFi connection. This means that you will naturally be unable to install any of your favorite apps on your tablet which could pretty much be like torture to you. Right?
Well, after several hours of conducting searches and practicing, I finally found out a way that works absolutely well in situations such as this. Before we start, make sure you have a computer and can use .apk files on your computer.
Now you need to know what you should prepare for this trick: a Kindle Fire (HD), a USB cable which can connect your Kindle Fire to the computer, a computer, the .apk files of the apps (you can download the .apk files via any computer).
Step 1. Plug your Kindle Fire to your computer. This should bring up a new disk called “KINDLE” in your local drive. Open it you can check the files in your Kindle Fire and use them just like a UDisk.
Step 2. Transfer the .apk file of the app you want to install to Kindle’s storage. For example, if you want to install Aldiko (an eBook Reader app), you will search for “Aldiko apk file download” in Google, create a new folder called “apks” in Kindle’s storage and put the apk file in this folder.
Step 3. Disconnect your Kindle Fire from the computer. Then press the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner of Kindle Fire’s home screen, press “More — Device”, and turn on the “Allow Installation of Applications” option.
Step 4. Install the app using the Web browser on Kindle Fire. For example, of I wanted to install the .apk file in “root/apks/”, I will input “file:////sdcard/apks/aldiko.apk” in the address bar.
Your Kindle Fire will now ask if you want to install the app.
Press “Install” and you will find the App will now show up in your Kindle Fire’s home screen.
You can use this method to transfer any type of file your Kindle Fire can open even if your Kindle Fire hasn’t got any way to connect to internet. A pretty useful trick, huh?
